AUGUST 10, 2007 - Schwartz Perry & Heller'S 2007 SUMMER LEGAL INTERNSHIP
PROGRAM CONCLUDES WITH RESOUNDING SUCCESS
During the Summer of 2007, Schwartz Perry & Heller invited 19 accomplished
second- and third-year law students from several New York-area law schools
to participate in its highly recognized legal internship program, which
has successfully existed for more than 10 years (Brooklyn Law School,
City University of New York School of Law, Fordham University School of
Law, Hofstra University School of Law, New York Law School and St. John's
University School of Law). The first session commenced on May 21, 2007,
which continued through June 29, 2007. The second session commenced on
July 2, 2007 and concluded on August 10, 2007.
During the course of their internship, the first session law students had
tremendous exposure to a major arbitration proceeding. Arrangements were
made to have each intern attend proceedings and each was given an opportunity
to participate in the research with respect to the concluding post-arbitration material.
All of the Sumer 2007 legal interns were given exposure to drafting complaints,
performing legal research on a variety of substantive and procedural law
issues, ongoing involvement in all aspects of employment litigation, motion
practice, client intake meetings, third-party conducted mediations, negotiation
preparations and other facets of our very active employment law litigation practice.
Lasting friendships were created, knowledge and experiences were shared
and the entire class of interns expressed their appreciation for the experiences
in which they participated and the hands-on contact they obtained working
in an active employment law practice. We at Schwartz Perry & Heller benefitted
from the experience as well, as we always do.
